Coronavirus vaccine: The first human trial in Europe begins in Oxford – BBC News




The first human trial of the coronavirus vaccine in Europe has begun in Oxford. Two volunteers, both scientists, injected the vaccine.

They are the first of more than 800 adults between the ages of 18 and 55 who have been hired for research. Half of the group will receive the Covid-19 vaccine, and half will receive a control vaccine that protects against meningitis. The results will not be known for several months.

Meanwhile, the UK government has said millions of key workers and their families will be candidates for coronavirus testing if they cause symptoms.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said they would be able to book a test online. More test centers are being opened and the army will help set up mobile testing facilities.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News in ten reports by medical correspondent Fergus Walsh and Health editor Hugh Pym.
